This is hands down the best gelato you'll ever have. Because I've had gelato from everywhere, and they don't make it better anywhere else. It's sad to see they only have one outlet, but I guess that's what makes it less franchised and more authentic. Just go here. You won't be disappointed.

The most favorite one is the greek yogurt because it's the most yogurt you can get from gelato! The chocolate flavors are various. The fruits are also good and fresh. Very good. Highly recommend.

Great selection of flavors, natural ingredient used and mostly coming from the best location (source) possibile. (ex. pistachio nut)

What a treat! The number 1 tram will take you within 2 blocks of this special place. Highly recommended are the mandorla di Noto and the cioccolato gianduia. The families streaming in from the neighborhood ordered some very large bowls filled with many flavors. Everyone was smiling.

elato very good and excellent value for money, any flavor taste is very similar to the taste of belonging. In order not to have discussions, given the large turnout, take the "number-ticket" that you find the entrance.

A lot of great gelati in Italy. But this is one of the best. Very creamy and delicious!! Don't believe the directions or my google map app is wacky. It is in a beautiful square near D&G's Gold restaurant
